Seal Rock Inn in Golden Gate Park & the Avenues, San Francisco, USA - Lonely Planet
Lonely Planet's independent on-the-ground travel writers say 'Far from downtown, this vintage-1950s ocean-side motel has big rooms (many sleep four); all have refrigerator and microwave. It's best for families wanting to linger near the beach or hike the coast. Ping-pong keeps kids from getting antsy; ask if the pool has reopened. Reserve way ahead for 3rd-floor rooms, which have gas fireplaces. Plan ahead for meal times: the on-site restaurant keeps erratic hours and there's little else nearby.'
